Question Will the SS/RS get SS or RS badging?

This question has been haunting me all night. I want the SS/RS to have SS badging because I want people to know that the car is a V8. If it says RS, it could be either a V6 or V8? C'mon, people aren't gonna know the difference between the bumpers. (CamaroScotty, this is where you come in)

If you want the RS badges, you can talk to your dealer. Most will sell you badges for around $30.

I would prefer the SS badging since those are my initials.

No car has ever displayed both SS and RS emblems. Interestingly though, the '69 Z/28 had Z/28 and Rally Sport emblems.

Maybe that's what I was thinking of...I just could have sworn I'd seen SS/RS badging somewhere...but that somewhere could very well have been in my own mind.

For the record - it's RS/SS, not SS/RS. This was because there were two engine displacements available in '67 and they were identified as SS350 or SS396 on the front grill and steering wheels. They would regularly say RS/SS350 and RS/SS396.

Sounds better saying SS/RS though....

off topic:

madhatter,
are you getting a cyber gray colored camaro? I am. I hope they make the stripes white or light gray (not just black). I think the lighter colors compliment the darke gray color better. IE: your photochop image

I'm considering either the silver or the lighter blue. Either way I want the white stripes...

I really love how white stripes look so subtle and refined on a lighter colored car as opposed to the more in-your-face appearance they have on the darker ones..

Fbodfather said that the badging will be silver in color for the SS model. If you get the RS package on the SS model, the badge will be a red SS badge.

Badging

Sounding like a broken record here, I WANT RS/Z28 Badging because I want headlight covers and a Z28

Headlight covers might be revealed at SEMA but there's no official plans for them. Scott said something about more parts that can break, etc. etc. so they weren't planning on including them this go around. Aftermarket will probably be your best bet for hideaways.

It's going to be an SS with the RS package. SS is the model. It's not like the old days.
